Let's Go to the Movies!
Who doesn’t love going to the movies? There’s popcorn, romance, celebrities — and lots and lots of pregnancies.
Catching a flick is a great way to relax and get your mind off infertility UNLESS you purposely watch a film that you know will make you upset. There’s the movie where the couple gets pregnant right away; the character who decides to adopt and one minute later, brings home her new baby; and even the comedic woman who needs a sperm donor and is pregnant with twins by the end of the show.
If seeing these movies makes you feel upset, ask yourself, why do I still want to watch them? If seeing pregnant bellies in real life is difficult for you, seeing them on the big screen might make you break out the tissues.
We all love a good movie, but just make sure you choose a movie that will make you feel better, not worse. Otherwise, you might be enjoying way too much candy at the confectionary stand afterwards.
